Chemistry and Biochemistry News

Date: May 2014

Congratulations to chemistry faculty member, Dr. Dawn Ward, on being chosen as the Distinguished MidAtlantic IMSD Alumna. Dr. Ward received her Ph.D. at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and was supported by the IMSD (Initiative to Maximize Student Development) grant. This Meyerhoff Fellows Program focuses on promoting cultural diversity in the biomedical sciences at the graduate level. Dr. Ward received the prestigious Distinguished MidAtlantic IMSD award in recognition of her accomplishments since receiving her Ph.D. This is a very well-deserved recognition for Dr. Ward who is a valued and respected member of our Chemistry Department. We are very proud of her!

This academic year, the Chemistry Department worked with three Graduate Assistants (GAs), all students who were graduates of our chemistry major and who continued their education in the graduate Forensic Sciences Program. These GAs worked 20 hours of week in the School of the Sciences and in return received free tuition and a living stipend.

They were willing to help out with anything we needed - helping students, preparing review sheets, helping out in labs, setting up and running events, etc. Special thanks for all that they did this to make this year run smoothly!

Kudos to (left to right): Brandon Smith (BS Chem ’13), Brittney Bryant (BS Chem ’13), and Jennifer Robinson (BS Chem ’12). Congratulations to all three of them on their receiving their Master’s Degrees in Forensic Science.  

Congratulations to Chemistry faculty member, Dr. Tracey Mason, on her promotion to Associate Professor of Chemistry! This means that Dr. Mason has proven to the Stevenson community that in her six years at SU, she has shown excellence in her teaching, in her mentoring students in research, and in service to the University.  

Congratulations to our 2013 chemistry graduates who received their Master's in forensic science this year! These students were all part of our BS/MS program in which students take some graduate courses in their junior and senior years enabling them to complete their Master's degree one year after their Bachelor's degree.  

Faculty in the Chemistry Department were excited to share our graduating seniors’ special day with their family and friends. Here are some of our favorite pictures of the day!
